Don’t forget that Joey Ramone had quite a lovely, if oddly-accented, voice. Also, someone stopped by the studio with a twelve-string and tuned it for Johnny.

A reliable person once told me that prior to punk, the “Glam Rock” persona of one of the Ramones–I think Johnny, but I forget–was “Jeff Starship.” All photos of Jeff Starship were expunged and never referred to. It’s the deep dark secret of the Ramones, that can never be proven.

Oh, yeah. It’s in the books about Joey, but I’ve not seen a picture. Joey took a lot of acid.

If baseball rules applied to rock bands, maybe Paul Kantner could have been swapped for Joey Ramone (plus a Drummer To Be Named Later)–Kantner would have enjoyed being Paulie Ramone, and Joey would have livened up the Starship
